Ketoconazole is included in the Biopharmaceutical Classification System (BCS) II category, where the drug is poorly soluble in water but has high permeability. In this study, ketoconazole was prepared in a nanosuspension formulato increase solubility. The method for preparing 2% ketoconazole nanosuspension used a sonicator bath with variations of tween 80 (F1 8%, F2 10%, F3 12%) and transcutol as surfactant and co-surfactant. The results showed that the particle size of the ketoconazole nanosuspension F1 was 102 ± 4.3 nm, F2 was 105 ± 3.2 nm, and F3 was 90 ± 2.4 nm on day 0. Testing on day 28 showed an increase in particle size in F1 115 ± 3.1 nm, F2 129±4.5nm, F3 97±2.4nm (p&gt;0.05). In testing the morphology of the nanosuspension using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), The results showed that the irregular spheres were scattered. Organoleptic testing showed clear and homogeneous preparations. pH testing for 28 days showed a pH range of 5.6-6 which is included in the physiological skin pH range (p&gt;0.50).

High-quality fish oil can be a target for adulteration, such as with vegetable oils like palm oil. FTIR spectroscopy was developed for the authentication of bawal fish oil (BFO) from palm oil (PO). Bawal fish oil and palm oil were prepared in binary mixtures with concentrations from 0-100%, resulting in 21 mixtures. The oil was directly measured by attenuated total reflectance (ATR) spectral measurement in the mid-infrared region (4000-600 cm<sup>-1</sup>). The results were combined with linear discriminant analysis (LDA) and multivariate calibration, such as PLSR or PCR. The results showed that LDA could make clear discrimination between bawal fish oil, palm oil, and their mixtures without any misclassification observed. Multivariate calibration with PLSR using the first derivative spectrum provided the best model for the relationship between actual and predicted FTIR values. At this conditions, the R2 values for the calibration and validation models obtained were 0.9966 and 0.9969, with RMSEC and RMSEP values of 0.0249 and 0.0248, respectively. Therefore, FTIR spectroscopy combined with LDA and PLSR is an effective method for authenticating bawal fish oil from palm oil.</p> Firhani Anggriani, Abdul Rohman, Ronny Martien Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Food and Pharmaceutical Sciences Tue, 30 Apr 2024 14:31:34 +0700 Formulation of Salam (Syzygium polyanthum (wight) walp) Leaves Ethanolic Extract Matrix Patch and Its Evaluation <p>The total flavonoid content in salam leaves has an anti-inflammatory activity at a dose of 2.1% w/w. For topical anti-inflammatory, a matrix patch has a delivery mechanism that drugs pass through in the skin in a controlled for an extended period. Polymers were the patch's main component to control the drug release. Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) and alpha-cellulose (AC) were polymers that can increase the rate of drug diffusion and form a strong film layer. Salam leaves were extracted by maceration using ethanol 96%. Matrix patches were made with a combination of PVA and AC in ratios 1:1; 3:1; 1:3. The patches were tested for physicochemical properties. The stability test was conducted at 4, 25, and 40 temperatures for 8 h, respectively. Statistical analysis of the test data used One Way ANOVA with a confidence level of 95%. The results showed that the high concentration of PVA significantly affected the weight and moisture content but did not affect the organoleptic thickness, folding endurance, and pH of the matrix patch. The best matrix patch of salam leaves ethanolic extract was PVA and AC of 3:1 because it met the requirements for the matrix patch, including the weight of 1.96-2.06 grams, thickness of 1.15-1.18 mm, folding endurance &gt;300 times, humidity 25.75 – 30.17% and pH 6.3 – 7.1. The patch contains flavonoids with Rf values for extract and patch of 0.95 and 0.96, respectively. Further study, in vivo anti-inflammatory test is necessary.</p> Dian Eka Ermawati, Novi Andriani, Ulfa Afrinurfadhilah Darojati Copyright (c) 2024 Journal of Food and Pharmaceutical Sciences Tue, 30 Apr 2024 14:31:54 +0700 Formaldehyde Content in Indonesian Food and the Analysis Method: A Review <p>Apart from being rich in culture, Indonesia is also rich in food culture. However, in some cases, there are illegal additions of formalin (37% formaldehyde) to food to extend shelf life. If humans consume food containing formaldehyde, it will have a harmful impact. Formaldehyde has the potential to cause cancer. In recent years, formaldehyde has still been found in several Indonesian foods. There are several analytical methods developed to detect formaldehyde levels in food.
